Favorite Photo, Rachel Mauro


This photo was taken by Andrea Bruce of the Washington Post and is entitled "Widows of the River," as it depicts Hindu widows washing by the Ganges River in India. I like how, even though it is shot in black and white, you can acutely see the sunlight shining from behind the woman who is such a prominent figure in the center of the frame. I also like how the details and shadows are clearly visible in the folds of the womens' clothes and the waves in the water. The basket, which obscures the kneeling woman is a source of mystery though it is explained in the caption.
